IT to offer Google workshops!

Information Technology is pleased to announce that we will be facilitating three Google Workshops in the coming weeks! Do you have an idea that you’d like to try in your classroom and/or office that would work using the Google Drive tools, but can’t determine how to make it happen? Or would you simply like some one-on-one training in Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms? Come join us for an open session offering one-on-one assistance with making your ideas happen! This session allows users to bring their ideas to life and offers additional training opportunities for those simply looking to learn more about the tools we rolled out earlier this fall.
This workshop will be held in the Main building room 351 on the following dates:
  • Tuesday, October 18 (1-4 PM)
  • Thursday, October 27 (8 AM-12 PM)
  • Monday, November 14 (8 AM – 12 PM)
This is an open format session for walk-ins, join us at any time during the workshop for help, no need to stay the whole time! The room has 16 computers available for your use, however you are welcome to bring a laptop instead.
Looking forward to see you there!
